Ill be there, PCT Class of 2018. Coming in little late at start day NB from campo May 28th :roll:
Nervous about water sources still existing for The Desert Miles as well as stretches like Hat Creek. Any thoughts?
But on the bright side there should be some decent snow meltage by the time I get to those Sierras right? power of positivity! :wink:

Ill be spending my favorite holiday out on the trail and was wondering if tehachapi/kennedy meadows are decent stops for 4th of July? What better way to start the sierras than with fireworks! :mrgreen:

Trying my hardest to avoid social media like FB and Insta for PCT 2018 communications, but this thread looks pretty dismal....knock knock, anyone there?!

Way to go, PCT Class of 2018! Wish I was. Probably 2019! Gotta get my "ducks in a row"! Will be following closely-learn a thing or two (or three, four...).

Hey Guys

Last year the heat killed me.I went in late July. This year I will be on the trail from Km on May 1st to Bishop Pass. I would rather be cold than freaking hot. Are there any snow issues this year?. Will anyone be in this section during this time?. What can I expect as far as temps? Last year I got great advice on the weather but my hiking times, hiking in the heat ruined my trip. I know I'm whining but I'm from the land of humidity and was looking for cooool High Sierra weather. I got 116 degrees up their. Hope the weather cooperates.

I am in for 2018! My permit is for a mid/late May start. I don't use facebook, instagram, etc.

I hiked 350 miles last summer in the NW Wyoming area, very few overnights though.

This possible permit loophole is making me consider forgoing my border-to-border permit and getting one (mi 152 on) that would put me with a late April start. I actually signed up for a second permit starting using a different email/address. Poor form? Should I cancel it maybe? I was kind of set on my mid/late May start and don't want to lose that from being greedy.

Yeah, you should probably let one of those permits go.

You won't need your permit until after mile 700, if you stay in a campground the 25 miles between Hauser Creek and Mt Laguna. So, it doesn't matter which one you keep.

I'm starting the PCT March 25th at Campo. Looking forward to meeting other thru-hikes along the trail. Should be a great adventure. Canada here I come!

I didn't know about the loophole with the Campo start.
My original Campo start was 5/25, but I figured it was way to late to hike across the Mojave.
I opted for a flip/flop by starting at KM on 6/17. Hope to see some of you on the trail.
